A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
The film follows the fortunes of Charles and his friends as they wonder if they will ever find true love and marry. Charles thinks he's found "Miss Right" in Carrie, an American. This British subtle comedy revolves around Charlie, his friends and the four weddings and one funeral which they attend.Written by
Originally scheduled to be filmed one or two years earlier, but was held back. When it finally got the green light, PolyGram cut the original budget of eight million dollars to six million. See more »
At the second wedding, Charles and Scarlet are depicted as sprinting to the church from their house. They live in Highbury and the church in the EC2 area of London - a distance of almost three miles which - whilst not impossible - is improbable. See more »

Charles curses heavily each time he is late for a wedding. In the italian TV version he uses milder words for the first wedding, and switches to harsh language for the others. See more »
"Four Weddings And A Funeral" is indeed a delightful little comedy with some wondeful writing and polished performances.Hugh Grant shines in a role that unfortunately left Him typecast to this day (for a different side of Grant see his brilliant Fredrich Chopin in "Impromptu".) and Kristen Scott Thomas is perfect as the enigmatic Fiona...witty,beautiful and touching. Simon Callow nearly steals the film as Gareth..He is one of the world's finest stage actors and its nice to see him get a film role he can really sink his teeth into. Andie McDowall is very convincing as the object of Grant's affection and Corin Redgrave has a well acted cameo as McDowall's fiancee Hamish. over all a jolly good film,funny,touching and sharp.
